Christmas Trivia and Confusion

Yule was originally the old Norse celebration of the winter solstice and some of the books published today with Yule in the title, such as

"Yule: a celebration of Light and Warmth" by Dorothy Morrison and

"The Fires of Yule" by Montague Whitsel deal with the pagan celebration instead of or in addition to the Christian holiday.
